SPOILER FOR ”DAWSON’S CREEK” FANS! After five interminable years of foreplay, Dawson (James Van Der Beek) and Joey (Katie Holmes) will finally get down and dirty in a special two-hour premiere episode that airs Oct. 2 on The WB. ”It’s about time Dawson and Joey finally got it off their chests,” says Joshua Jackson (Pacey). ”Sleep together, for Christ’s sake.”

Other surprises are planned for what will likely be ”Creek”’s last year, like former WB hottie Oliver Hudson (”My Guide to Becoming a Rock Star”) signing on for 10 episodes as Eddie Doling, a blue-collar stud who catches Joey’s eye. In fact, Jackson promises ”a lot of things are going to finally happen that should have happened many, many years ago.” Hmmm, maybe that means the show’s actually gonna become watchable again.
